Publishing Express Terminal Macros to MCS

Once you've created a macro, you must publish it to MCS to make it available to users. Once a macro has been published, you can view or delete it in the Macro properties for a configuration, but you cannot change it. To change a macro, publish a modified version.

To publish a macro to MCS

  2. In the Terminal Viewers tree, choose a host type.

    The configuration types you can configure for the selected host type appear.

  7. Click New to publish a new macro.

    A separate MCS window opens, titled Publish a Macro.
